Claire over at Single Mom Meltdown is having a baby shower. One of her neighbors is in need of basic supplies for their new arrival. Every famiy should be able to enjoy their new bundle of joy rather than feel the burden of another mouth to feed.
This virtual Baby Shower is Claire's way of helping others in need and I am grateful to be able to pass along this invitation to you. Below is the exact copy of Claire's post along with donations she has recieved so far. I will keep the list updated as Clair updates and am going directly to find something for the son. It looks like Claire is getting some stuff for the baby, I'd like to make sure their son has something for Christmas as well.
What are you willing to do to help out?
I am having a Virtual Baby Shower for a Family who is in need. Their second child, a baby girl, is on the way and they do not have the money for the normal baby things like clothes, diapers, formula... etc. ANY donation of any item(s) would be appreciated. Please contact me if you are interested in participating in this special shower.
Please note this is not a shower "just to get gifts" nor is it a shower just to get "hits on my site"... this is a shower for a family that really is in need and they are broke. They are a very loving family and if I could "adopt a family" this Christmas I would but I myself am struggling.. so this is my way of adopting a family and helping a family in need!
I have had a lot of request for specific items that this family needs as well as what their son needs.
Their Son needs clothes. He is in a Size 10 Husky Boys in Pants and a size 8 or 10 in Husky Boys in Shirts. The medication that he is currently taking has make him gain weight. He needs a winter coat. They do not have any toys for him from Santa. He loves anything superhero related, Transformers.. pretty much anything a 5 year old boy would like.
Also, gift cards to Target and Walmart so that they can get their children things that they need as well as buy food. Gift cards to Target will also help the family pay for their son's very expensive medication.
OK... Not getting as many responces SO I am going to release the address to ship to
Baby Shanna 1445 Dorthy Street Mandeville, LA 70448
Also things from their Baby Registry that they do not have and NEED:
Crib Bedding, Johnson & Johnson Baby lotion shampoo body wash, Burp Cloths, Bibs, Baby socks, Baby Bath towels (large and small), pacifiers, Playtex Bottle Drop in's and Playtex drop in Bottles, winter newborn clothes, winter 0-3 mo clothes, winter 3-6 mo clothes.
